The How I Organize series, which gives us a peek at how others organize their homes, is back! I’ve got some fabulous participants lined up. First up is my friend and Seattle-based interior decorator, Maggie of Maggie Rose Interiors (who just launched a new e-book!). She shares with us today how she organizes her bathroom cabinet:
Our apartment has no under-sink storage, but it came with a generously sized cupboard in the corner near the door. It’s not the prettiest thing to look at, but it holds a LOT of stuff! It’s nice to have everything at eye-level instead of getting down on your knees on the bathroom floor to dig stuff out from under the sink.
The top shelf (out of my reach!) holds infrequently used items like beach towels, a small tub for soaking, and back-up bulk kleenex. The next shelf holds back-up toilet paper (we keep 3 rolls in a glass vase near the toilet so guests don’t have to scrounge), once-in-a-while beauty and health products, travel supplies in a shoebox, and our first aid kit (blue bin on the right). The third shelf from the top holds towels (holds up to four plus our two in rotation), hand towels, cleaner, and the heavy kitty litter box – I wish there was a better place to stash that, but the litter box is in the bathroom, so it makes sense. The bottom shelf is the most frequently used and easiest to reach. I have a basket for everyday items (hairdryer, etc), occasional items (feminine products, curling iron), and the basket on the right holds all the washcloths. It’s not uber-glamorous but it IS uber-functional and I can find everything quickly. Maybe someday I’ll get around to painting or wall-papering the inside, but for now, it does its job!
Hanging racks are a great option for storing and displaying beautiful cookware. Hung right above a center island, they make pots and pans easily accessible and create a visual centerpiece. Additionally, pot racks free up cabinet space so there’s more room to store dinnerware, food items, etc.

While at the pumpkin patch this weekend, a grouping of white pumpkins placed in a wooden container, caught my eye. The contrast between the white and the warm rustic wood was so lovely. Reminded me of how much I love that combo in interiors:

Loving the this little box from Ikea. So perfect for organizing a makeup drawer. It compartmentalizes and gives a home to mascara, lipstick, nailpolish, etc. so they’re accessible and easy to find. Here it is in action:

If you like having your products out where you can see ‘em, (as opposed to inside a cabinet or a drawer), consider using a tray to contain them. They look so much neater in a tray than when they’re spread out everywhere, and, especially when the product packaging is pretty, can look like a beautiful little vignette.
Also, since a tray gives you boundaries to work with, it can help you edit down your products to just what you actually use on a regular basis.

Compact in size, and made of plastic, the cylindrical “Componibili” Kartell unit is a stylish option for adding storage in a small bathroom. Although it was designed over forty years ago, it looks just as beautifully modern today as it did back then. Perfect for hiding unattractive grooming supplies, feminine products, extra toilet paper, and other items that might otherwise visually clutter the space.
The combination of pretty wallpaper and a beautiful white tub near a window, makes these bathrooms look like a dream…
The perfect place for a de-stressing bubble bath, don’t you think?
